Medical Board Issues New Hospital Reporting Form

California Business and Professions Code Section 2510 requires hospitals to report each transfer by a licensed midwife of a planned out-of-hospital birth to the Medical Board of California and the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative. The Medical Board of California has issued a new form for hospitals to use to report the transfer. Hospitals should also note that the licensed midwife is required to provide records and speak with the receiving physician.
